A couple months ago I went to a gaming night at a friend's house. We played a bunch of Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers on the Wii, which was all right, and then at some point someone suggested we play a bit of Driift Mania
Hilarity ensued. It ensued for such a long time, in fact, that we kept on playing until 6 am, and only because one of us got such a massive neck cramp that he had to be taken to a hospital. It was the best gaming fun I've had in AGES.
We've been talking of having another gaming night soon, this time at my place, and I'm looking for local multiplayer games that capture the same sort of mindless, silly fun, this time for Xbox 360.
Most FPS don't quite cut it, as some of us have never quite mastered the twin analog control scheme. Side-scrollers are fine but, before you suggest Castle Crashers, I already got that one and found it... a bit boring, actually. Though apparently I am the only one. What gives?
I'm already getting Trials Evolution (which by the way is on sale today
), on account of what looks like pretty solid local multiplayer.
Any games I have overlooked, Hive Mind? Tell me about your 2012 favourites! XBLA, retail, top-down, racing, shooting, retro, modern, anything goes!
